America’s Romance with the English Garden

October 6, 2015, 7:00pm

 

In this illustrated presentation, master gardener Thomas Mickey will explore the beginnings of the modern garden industry. In the 1890s, mass advertising, national magazines & rural mail delivery made it possible to publish seed & nursery catalogs in the millions & send them across the country.  The catalogs encouraged the spread of the romantic English garden style from Maine to California.

Gilmancestry: How Can a Genealogy Hobby Help Inform Your View of Local History?

February 2, 2016, 7:00pm

 

What can we learn about broader local and macro historical questions by focusing upon well-defined, smaller objects in history, such as the individuals and family units in our family trees? In this illustrated presentation, Greg Gilman explores genealogy as microhistory, through the lens of one branch of the Gilman family which first appeared in Exeter in the 1640s.
